46% of low income high school graduates enroll in college
89% of low income students in our Leading to College program enroll in college.
Today, fewer low-income high school graduates are entering college than a decade ago despite predictions that 65% of jobs will require a two- or four-year degree by 2020. CAMBA’s community and school-based college access programs are working to reverse that trend—and help students throughout New York City be the first in their family to go to college.

“At Leading to College, they really care about their students being academically secure, as well as emotionally secure. I’m really thankful for how CAMBA allowed me to grow. I don’t know where I’d be if you hadn’t shown me a path.”
For a young woman from a single-parent family Flatbush, Brooklyn, the path to college can be a steep and rocky climb. CAMBA’s Leading to College (LtC) program helped ease the way for Breyanna, now a sophomore at Brooklyn College. LtC coached her throughout high school with an intensive college prep program that included academic enrichment, trips to visit college campuses, financial aid and application assistance—and even free college credit courses at Brooklyn College. She is well on her way to a career that combines youth and community development.
